Art Teaches Gratitude

Fine Art or Visual Art includes a large variety of works, from paintings to sculptures, architecture to design, and in modern times, digital art. Everyone can appreciate and marvel at art, and being subjective in nature, different art forms appeal to different people. Art appreciation, however, refers to the exploration and analysis of the art forms that we are exposed to. It can be highly subjective, depending on an individual's personal tastes and preferences, or can be done on the basis of several grounds such as elements of design and mastery displayed in the piece. Art appreciation also involves a deeper look into the setting and historical implication and background of the piece, a study of its origins. Today we will discuss how practicing as well as appreciating art helps to practice gratitude. 

Learning art helps children to understand and express themselves. Positive interactions, creative programs allow them to realize what they are grateful for. They explore and find new meanings as they learn all forms of art. Kids also appreciate the work of other students in the class and this helps them to attract more goodness into their lives. Research shows that there are multiple benefits of being grateful and practicing gratitude. One of the most important benefits is that it improves both our physical and mental health. It also improves our self esteem, makes us more humble and reduces negative emotions. And engaging a child in art and craft enables him or her to easily develop all these qualities. In DEX Art classes we not only focus on the improvement of drawing, painting skills but also we take care of the holistic development of the kid. We ensure that our learning engagements provide them good values so they can learn important life skills to improve their behavior and grow empathetic. Children observe the instructors in live classes where each topic is elaborately discussed along with practical demonstrations. They share their experiences and discuss significant topics related to the subject being created. Art connects us with historical and mythological facts, religious celebrations, philosophies and different contemporary issues too. This knowledge helps them to learn how to respect different traditions and religions, grow compassion and practice gratitude. They gain broader perspectives and build strong relationships in life. Showing gratitude not only makes others feel positively, it also helps us to feel positive.. It makes children more resilient and reduces envious mindset. They learn to share their belongings, appreciate others and improve their ability to be patient.

Creative activities help children to practice gratitude and find meaning in their work. Those who find meaning and purpose in their work are often more effective and more fulfilled throughout their career. Gratitude is one factor that can help people find meaning in their job, along with applying their strengths, positive emotions and learning art enhances it.
